National Archives Public Meeting on Researcher Needs

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) of the United States has issued the following announcement:

There will be a public meeting on Friday, January 29 at 10:45 AM in the researcher's lobby on the first floor of the Pennsylvania Avenue side of the National Archives building, to discuss how the National Archives meets the needs of the research community. This will not be a discussion of the details of the research room layout, but rather about researcher needs, and how to meet those needs. There will be a presentation, followed by an open discussion. US Archivist Ferriero and Michael Kurtz will be the speakers, and David McMillen, NARA External Public Relations, will moderate the program.

The National Archives is interested in hearing from the research community what it can do to make it easier for you to research at the National Archives. US Archivist Ferriero is willing to listen to researchers and he is open to suggestions on how to make our work easier and more productive in our search for our ancestors.

David Ferriero was sworn in as the 10th US Archivist on January 13th.
